The First ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Trailer is Here

The first trailer for the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise came out this weekend, and as it’s full of dead pirates taking over a boat hunting for Jack Sparrow, the series seems to be going back to its roots.

Honestly, while I knew on an intellectual level that this movie was happening, I think a small part of my brain was refusing to accept it. I mean, do we really need (or want) another Pirates movie? The original trilogy was pretty enjoyable, but the fourth installment was kind of terrible. Now in a world where Disney’s bread and butter is milking franchises, there was no way they were going to let this potential money maker collect dust.

Hopefully they do a better job this time around.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters May 26, 2017.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
